The Immortal's Poison - chapter-167
The old man Gongye stared at Second Elder Wen for a while. He explained
with a proud expression, “Ning Jiao belonged to the dragon genus. Legend
had that it was born from its mother the divine bird and its father the
divine dragon, but it had no horn on its head and no wings on its body.
That was why it could not fly into the heaven with its parents. It could
only lie dormant in the mortal world. The divine bird was affectionate.
Before it flew into the heaven, it planted a quill into Ning Jiao’s
body. By the time Ning Jiao cultivated into mastery, the quill would
transform into a feather, it could then fly and ascend into heaven!”
Xiaoyi had since been awakened. Upon hearing the old man Gongye’s
explanation, she recalled about the legend that she read in the past. Her
voice was crisp as she continued, “That is why during Ning Jiao’s
lifetime, it focused on cultivating this quill in its body and Ning
Jiao’s magical power was all hidden within!” Upon saying that, Xiaoyi
blinked her eyes, laughed and asked, “Sir, so these legends are real?”
The old man Gongye’s old face was filled with astonishment. He was
surprised that a little girl in the Wen family village knew about the
classical allusion of Ning Jiao. In addition, Xiaoyi had clear eyes and
white teeth, her smile was innocent yet splendid. The old man took fancy
on her at first sight. He laughed as he shook his head, “It is but a
legend, otherwise when Wen Leyang killed Ning Jiao, wouldn’t the golden
dragon would immediately descend to the mortal world to avenge his son?
However, the part about Ning Jiao’s strength and power were hidden in
this sting is the truth!”
Xiaoyi nodded strenuously. She had heard of Ning Jiao before but she did
not know about the sect that specialized in refining weapons. She pointed
towards Wen Leyang’s straightened left leg as she continued to ask, “So
the purpose of piercing the Ning Jiao’s sting into his leg is to…”
The more the old man Gongye watched Xiaoyi, the more joyous he felt in
his heart. His expression became extraordinarily kind and loving, “If one
is to refine Ning Jiao’s sting into a weapon, after it is stripped away
from Ning Jiao’s corpse, he must grow it in the future master’s bone
and blood. This way the precious weapon that is refined has the ability
to connect with the master’s mind. However, the Ning Jiao’s sting is
wild and stubborn. Without an extremely lucky opportunity, there is no
way one can grow it. Hehe, this is Wen Leyang’s luck!”
The old demon rabbit Bu Le had been putting his trust in the old man
Gongye all along. That was why he stopped the disciples of Wen Bucao who
were trying to fight Gongye earlier. Now that he heard of Gongye’s
words, he frowned in doubt as he asked, “What happens when he can’t
grow it there?”
Gongye shrugged in a carefree manner, “His blood will be drained by the
Ning Jiao’s sting in a while and he will be turned into a mummy!”
Following that he did not wait for others to flare up, he said in a
natural and logical manner, “He managed to grow it, didn’t he?”
Xiaoyi’s gaze was not as friendly as before, she inquired closely once
again, “So how long will the Ning Jiao’s sting stay in Wen Leyang’s
The old man Gongye shook his head honestly, “That I can’t tell, it can
be as soon as three to five years, or as slow as thirty to fifty years.
The eagerness to achieve instant success for refining Ning Jiao’s sting
into a treasure is forbidden!” The old man was completely unaware of the
disciples of Wen Bucao’s raging stare, he was still muttering to
himself, “What a waste that Ning Jiao is dead. If I can pull out the Ning
Jiao’s sting when it was alive, its power will be even formidable!”
Wen Leyang was at a loss whether to cry or laugh. Surely it did not mean
that in the next few decades, his left leg would be straightened and not
bendable at all?

teeth, he turned around and asked Fourth Elder Wen that was standing
behind him, “Will this matter hold up his marriage?”
Xiaoyi and Mumu held each other’s hands. They staggered almost in
unison. If it was not for Ah Dan and Nineteen’s quick acting, these two
young girls would have fallen onto the ground. Mumu’s gaze was both
astonished and fearful, accompanied by slight joy, she stared at Xiaoyi
as she asked, “He…he is getting married? With who?”
The First Uncle Wen Tunhai burst out laughing, “Who else but the both of
Nineteen that was standing right next to them frowned rapidly. An odd
expression no one could see through flashed past her face.
At this moment Wen Leyang suddenly gave out a ‘huh’. He pointed
towards his thigh and asked Gongye, “Sir, what is happening here?”
Gongye peered once, gasped softly and sat on the ground. Within his face
full of wrinkles, the expression astonishment was densely pinned, he
stuttered, “That’s im- impossible!”
It was unknown since when a small section about less than half an inch of
the Ning Jiao’s sting that was completely stabbed into Wen Leyang’s
left leg earlier had been pushed out without a sign!
According to Gongye’s explanation, by the time Ning Jiao’s sting was
fully pushed out, it could be used to refine into a treasured weapon
capable of communicating and understanding Wen Leyang. However, the old
man utterly did not expect that, only after a few minutes, Ning Jiao’s
sting had already started to come out.
Ning Jiao’s toxicity was extremely similar to the Poison of Life and
Death in Wen Leyang’s body. Otherwise, this monster would never ignore
Leyang Tian’s instruction and risked its life to chase after Wen Leyang
and bit him.
Now that Wen Leyang’s Art of Poison made astonishing progress, his
meridians and bones were remolded by the Poison of Life and Death. That
was even more similar to Ning Jiao. In simpler words, he was now the
light version of Ning Jiao in human form, that was why the Ning Jiao’s
sting could successfully melt with his body into one and accepted his
blood in an extremely fast speed.
Follow current novels on lightnovelwo_rl__d_.com The process of Ning
Jiao’s sting recognizing its master went from fast to slow. Nearing the
end, the sting would be pushed out in a slower manner. However, judging
by the situation right now, it would not take long in the entire process,
not as predicted by the old man Gongye, where it would require the time
frame of a few years and even a few decades. The old man Gongye was
stunned for a moment before he finally reacted to the situation. He
squalled as he turned over and jumped up, he pulled out his cellphone and
made a call to his family, issued a series of orders loudly, such that
the disciples of his family would immediately rush over with all sorts of
Gongye hung up the call. He inhaled a deep breath, before looking towards
Second Elder Wen, “I will be helping the Wen young fellow to refine the
Ning Jiao’s sting into a treasured weapon with unsurpassed power. Ning
Jiao’s skin can be refined into a body armor that is uninvaded by the
five elements. What is your basis in fighting me for it!”
Second Elder Wen scoffed coldly. He then slowly walked to the side of
Ning Jiao’s corpse. He squatted as he examined and observed closely of
the blood vessels in the wound and the jelly-like poisonous blood in the
blood vessels. He removed a wooden pick, a bamboo pick, a silver pick and
all sorts of items continuously from the leather bag he carried along
with him. He probed about repeatedly. Regardless of which pick that was
made from which material, the moment the pick came into contact with the
poisonous blood it would immediately be turned into ash, while Second
Elder Wen’s expression became more and more delighted. Finally, he
removed a palm-sized, akin to an intact piece of small tortoise
shell-like item from his leather bag.
Even First Uncle Wen Tunhai did not know the item that Second Elder Wen
just took out.
Only the rest of the three Wen family elders’ expressions changed
slightly almost in unison. Grand Elder Wen reminded him with a solemn
expression, “Second brother, do be careful!”
Second Elder Wen nodded, “I will know how far to go and when to stop!” He
was speaking in that manner but his tone of speaking sounded unconvinced.
The small tortoise shell sank into Ning Jiao’s blood vessel without
making a sound and scooped out a small chunk of poisonous blood following
A few chunks of poisonous blood accumulated in the middle of the tortoise
shell. Under the sunlight’s reflection, occasionally it would shimmer
in a magnificent radiance that made one bedazzled. At this moment, the
wild excitement on Second Elder Wen’s face could not be suppressed. He
spoke of two words to the rest of the three family elders and first uncle
Wen Tunhai with trembling voice, “Five elements!” As he was saying that,
he turned his hand and brandished a stick of bright red-colored long
needle, and pricked onto his right thumb’s tip lightly. Immediately, a
drop of blood that was red to its greatest extent slowly coagulated. The
blood welled up on his fingertip! Within the drop of blood, it was as if
there was a puff of leaping flames that was swaying gracefully.
The rest of the three family elders and First Uncle Wen Tunhai’s
expressions turned bold in unison. They each brandished a stick of long
needle and pricked into their right thumbs in the same method.
Grand Elder Wen’s needle was golden in color. His blood was penetrating
with a light golden glow. Underneath the color of blood, a layer of
sharpness was concealed.

Third Elder Wen’s needle was sky blue in color. His blood was also
penetrating with a little blue from the red color of blood, rippling in
the gracefulness of water.
Fourth Elder Wen’s needle was brown in color, his blood was especially
thick and flowed out in an extremely slow manner.
First Uncle’s needle was green in color…
The Art of Poison that the five core personages of the Wen family refined
in conquered a different element of the five elements, metal, wood,
water, fire and earth, five poisons of all varieties!
Five of them cautiously gathered the drop of fresh blood on their
fingertip simultaneously and dropped it into the tortoise shell!
